I'll say this again....the Chiefs and Vikings left their starters in the game till the third quarter....it wasn't 2nd teamers he was making plays on.

And to all that think that he was gonna get cut....is there a link? Why would Harrelsons contract effect what we do as far as re upping people next year by having him THIS year? Having him as a rotational guy was important to our Super Bowl run this year....of course we all know he wouldn't be here next year....but in all reality 7th rounders get cut alot more tha quality backups...so to get a 7th really doesn't make a difference if we are already stacked with depth.

And to those that say , Harrelson would not have made a difference last year...lol....right. Leaving Aldon and Brooks in all game turned out to be bad, as there was no rush at all at the end of the year and Marvin no one said that Harrelson was gonna play 3-4 DE....lol

The flaw in that type of thinking is assuming this year will be like last year. It won't, we got Skuta and Lemonoir who showed enough to Harbaalke that they felt very comfortable giving away Haralson to the saints. Again we will have 4 OLBs, 4 not 3 not 2, 4. In a pass rush situation Im guessing Lemonoir would get the call to spell Brooks, so where does that leave Haralson? Smith>Brooks>Lemonoir>Skuta>Haralson. Skuta has more value since he also plays special teams. From what Ive seen this preseason, Im very comfortable with our OLB group as they have all made great plays.

Right and I also saw Parys block a punt this pre season to on STs. Skuta is PS material. That's my point.

Skuta was a special teams ace for the bengals. He's our new Costanzo.

Lol, ok. I really didn't know that. Now I do.

But still!!!!

I'm just gonna view this as trading Parys for Senecca Wallace and a 7th
At least now, down in Louisiana, when he says "two goats in a pepper patch," fans will understand what he's talking about.

What?

I am happy for Haralson. Maybe he was initially disappointed to be let go by the 49ers, but he has an excellent chance to be a starter for the Saints. He would have rarely seen the field with the 49ers - I doubt that he would have even been on our 45 man game day roster. This is a win/win for both the 49ers and Haralson.

same thing. its funny when some still feel some sort of a connection to a long time productive player for us and they get slapped with a label of having a new team.

I dont know. I think he'd much rather have a shot at the Superbowl and knowing he could of been a part of the Aldon/Brooks rotation.

Personally, I have respect for all the long time Niners that fought with us through the tough years. I will always think highly of guys like Haralson, Soap, Goldson and yes, even Alex.

Oh yeah. Anytime I catch a non-SF game with these players on the field, I will be paying extra attention to how they perform.. even Ricky Jean Francois... and I still make note of #15 when watching the skins ( Joshua Morgan).

Haralson asked for the the trade. He knew he could start and asked the Niners to let him go. The Niners did good by Haralson and themselves.

Was unable to find the link

what has he done to make you like him, hurt last year, do not remember anything he has done in pre season and hurt his shoulder last night

I actually watched him play in preseason.
so what has he done,, has he made plays, what has he done? i am just asking because we got rid of a more than average vet to keep this kid who did not do a damn thing last year. also anyone know how bad his injury was last night? but i am interested,, what has he done so far

You've been awaken!
Right guys. Don't sleep on Cam Newton. After three preseason appearances, he's 21-42 (50% completion rate) with a stunning 5.4 yards per catch, 1 TD and 1 interception. You can certainly understand why natrone is impressed. Those are some scary numbers.

agree, the kid did a fine job and hope he locked up a roster spot. i got no issue when proven wrong when it is in the best interest of the team
Oh, are we talking about Cam Johnson? The Niners MUST keep him on the roster. After what he did last night, he would never clear waivers. He'd be picked up in about two seconds. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a more convincing "put me on the team" performance in a last preseason game. He completely blew up.
